ASCE to Conduct Public Comment Period on Compaction Grouting Professional Guideline

Staff | September 28, 2010

The American Society of Civil Engineers' Geo-Institute will conduct a public comment period from February 20, 2008 through May 7, 2008 on its new compaction grouting guideline.

Working with the belief that compaction grouting is a reliable methodology for improving the density and strength of soil, the guideline provides background on specifications, designs, and implementation. The guideline covers mechanics and materials, grouting in the field, subsurface investigation for compaction grouting, design and analysis, and verification of grouting effectiveness collection systems and applications.
